Jet Lag and a Cold


Saturday, January 05, 2013

Jet lag will do funny things to you, especially in combination with a cold. After being awake for 28 hours (not counting airplane naps), I slept all day yesterday and only woke up to take more cold medicine and my other meds. I had some soup, crackers, and oatmeal, in combination with liters of tea, but it really wasn't much.
I woke up at 2 a.m., bright eyed and bushy-tailed, with my cold much better. Around 5 a.m., I started craving mac and cheese with ground beef and pork and beans, and luckily, I had all that at hand; my kitchen was pretty much depleted of anything else, since I had used all the fresh foods up before my trip. Along with a can of pepsi max and some low sugar ketchup, it made a great feast - the most unusual breakfast I ever had, but then it was lunch time in Germany, so no wonder my body was ready for it.
I ate all the beef and beans and about half a box of mac and cheese, and I don't feel one bit guilty about it. After all, I ate very little the last few days.
I felt so good afterwards that I started cleaning out the kitchen cabinets, made a shopping list, and planned all the chores I need to do in the next couple of months. I guess the new year is off to a good start after all.
